Due to the schedules being less hectic, it's a good time to get together for more dinner parties. Going to dinner parties gives you the chance to try new dishes and get new recipes under your belt. It's rare that I leave a dinner party without the thought of, 'I need to make that dish!". When hosting, it's ... read more

Divas Request Colour in their Life

renova coloured scented tissues canada

I recently read an article that Beyonce requests red toilet paper in her dressing rooms. My first reaction was all, 'Those celebs and their money - such divas!'. Yet after more thought, I wondered if red toilet paper was really that much of a big request? I mean, it's not like she's having someone sort through candies and taking out certain colours or anything {or does she?}.  Is requesting red toilet ... read more

6 Steps to Better Sleep

6 Steps to Better Sleep

Do you suffer from occasional sleeplessness or restlessness? Yeah, me too *yawn*. Before kids, my career involved shift-work. Meaning, my sleeping patterns were all over the place. Despite that my old bedtime could have been 9pm, 12am or 7am {and bouncing around between then even twice a week}, I never had an issue with sleeping. Once my head hit the pillow, I was out like a light and slept right until my ... read more

Time Saving Beauty Tricks

To say that I'm a busy gal in a house of chaos, is putting it mildly. Though, I don't have to preach to the choir right? I know we all have hectic schedules and much on our plates. It's a wonder we fit it all in! Or do we? I have to admit, there are areas of my current life that do fall to the weigh-side thanks to everything else I'm juggling. I used to be the girl that wore make-up {almost} daily, stayed up-to-date on ... read more

Get Beautiful Summer Nails with Trind #TrindNailTips

trind giveaway

For most of my life I longed to be one whom had strong and healthy nails. For instance, my Mother had the most gorgeous nails. I still remember being school-age, sitting on the couch watching TV with her, and admiring her nails. I'd trace my finger around each one, then try to bend them with all my might - but never could. Myself? Total opposite! Instead I've always had brittle and thin nails, which bend like ... read more

Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken

Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken glazed recipe

Here's another ode of slow cooker love - Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken! See, we make chicken in this household, a lot. So, to beat the usual and ordinary, I have to find alternate ways to make chicken. Or else the same old is just boring, and I run the risk of the kids turning up their noses. Not out of dislike, but of repetition. And, we all don't handle that very well at all. Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken is easy, ... read more
